classified information about navy s.e.a.l. stuff to the makers of this game, who presumably used it to make it as authentic as possible. a new combat realism game that came out today, they were advised by oliver north. remember him? he was indicted for 16 felonies in the iran contra panel. he was a conservative movement hero. oliver north not only consulted on this new game that comes out today, he appears as a character in the game. look at his hips. in real life i don't think his hips swing like a hula dancer like they do in the game. i don't know. i've never seen him walk. when the character oliver north talks in "call of duty black ops 2," it's his real voice. here's the thing about this game that came out today and today's news, and i think a thing i guess nobody saw coming before it happened. the game comes out today and set 13 years in the future. it's set in the year 2025. although the game is supposed to be fiction, the cameo from oliver north is not the only way to make it seem connected to real people in the real world. there's an important scene in the game that takes place on a
with you all tomorrow night. it's going to be great. thanks for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago tonight, it was actually the night after the '08 presidential election. we voted november 4th. we vote november 6th this time. so november 5th was the night after barack obama had just walloped john mccain in that year's presidential election. you remember the electoral college map. the total 365 electoral votes for obama and only 173 for john mccain. barack obama won that presidential election with almost 100 electoral votes to spare. after that emotional victory on this night four years ago, the country started to appreciate what had just happened in that historic election toward what was going to happen next. now that we had barack obama as not just a candidate or as the winner, but as the next president, as the successor of two terms of george bush. >> elections have consequences. elections are not just the end of the campaign. the concession speech,s victory speech, these are the sounds of a starting pistol for what now begin. it's not just about winning a contest. we'r
'm out of here. >> thanks to you at home for joining us for the next hour. president obama was in new york city serving damage from hurricane sandy alongside new york governor andrew cuomo and new york city mayor michael bloomberg. in the immediate aftermath of the storm the president spent time in new jersey alongside governor chris christie. mayor bloomberg specifically asked the president to please not come to new york city at that time, so the logistics and security arrangements around his visit wouldn't get in the way of the immediate recovery effort. but now with two weeks or so gone by, the president today announced that he is putting a cabinet official, housing secretary, in charge of the federal level of the rebuilding efforts after the storm. and he made that announcement from hard-hit staten island. >> during difficult times like this, we're reminded that we're bound together. and we have to look out for each other. and a lot of the things that seem important, the petty differences melt away and we focus on what binds us together and that we as americans are going to stand

at home for staying with us for the next hour. at almost exactly this point in the presidential race of 1956, on october 29th, 1956, with the election that year coming up just a week later, israel invaded egypt. and they did it with the secret support of two major u.s. allies. france and england. it was a fight over control of the suez canal. the american president at that time, in 1956, was, of course, dwight eisenhower. republican. he was running for re-election against the democratic candidate that year, adlai stevenson. talk about an october surprise. that year it was eight days before election day. both candidates are forced to deal with an unexpected and genuine giant foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any pha

"the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> good evening, thank you, my friend. thank you for stays with us. whatever post election lull we could count on, the lull has been cancelled this year. new reporting tonight about the scandal that has forced general petraeus out of government, out as head of the cia, and there are a ton of questions. and even though president obama's reelection was settled at about 11:15 p.m. eastern last tuesday, the election overall is still underway in some parts of the country, including one place where it appears to have mostly just broken down with a bunch of federal level races still undecided. and the state in question is not florida for once. important updates coming up there including what may be a deconcession by a democrat who previously thought he had lost in a big important u.s. senate race. that's all ahead. >>> but we have to begin with breaking news out of washington. "the washington post" is reporting tonight that presiden
ed show." thanks so much for joining us tonight. that is "the ed show," i'm ed schultz, and "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening, ed. thanks for stay with us for the next hour. happy halloween. as you can tell, my halloween costume this year is once again middle-aged lesbian pundit in cheap jacket. boo. because it is october 31st, in much of the country, kids are dressing up in costume and they're trick or treating. tonight, for our producer, it means indulging the frog prince who lives in his house who used to be his son, alias. it is halloween whatever it can be halloween. but this year, it is not halloween because it cannot be halloween ever. today governor chris christie postponed halloween today by executive order for the whole state of new jersey, the state hardest hit by hurricane sandy. they will be moving halloween to monday, monday, november 5th, in order to protect new jersey's young trick-or-treaters from floodwaters and live wires and downed trees. these crews were fixing fallen power lines in toms river, new jersey, today.
now. >> on a personal note, i want to say one thing about this crisis. as for myself and those of us who work here on this show, we have been very lucky and very blessed this week as this disaster has unfolded in the communities we all live in. everyone on our staff is safe. nobody has been injured. our families are okay. a lot of us have property damage. almost all of us have been living out of suitcases, but we are all safe and that's what's important. i want to thank everybody who has been asking, you're all nice. i want to show you one thing though. look at this video. this was taken this morning by our friend jessica rodriguez who is a producer on this show. most of these nights, she would be responsible for making sure this video made it on air, but today she was at home in new york on long island because this is the street where jessica lives. this is what her neighborhood looks like as of today. four days after the storm made landfall. she was at home today working to assess the damage, clean up her flood-damaged home and help her neighbors. while she was at home, a new york
. thank you, everybody. thank you. now that those of us on the campaign trail have had a chance to get a little sleep, it's time to get back to work and there's plenty of work to do. as i said on tuesday night, the american people voted for action not politics as usual. you elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. and in that spirit, i've invited leaders of both parties to the white house next week so we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together. at a time when our economy is still recovering from the great recession, our top priority has to be jobs and growth. that's the focus of the plan that i talked about during the campaign. >> president obama spoke publicly the night that he won his second term when he gave his basic victory speech in chicago. thereafter, though, he did speak privately to some of his campaign volunteers in chicago. we likely would have never known about that or seen any tape of those remarks if not for the fact that the president, while he was speaking with those volunteers, he did something which he almost never does.
